Hugh Fearlessly Eats It All: Dispatches from the Gastronomic Frontline

by Fearnley-Whittingstall, Hugh

Condition: Very Good/None issued


UK: Bloomsbury, 2006. 288pp & less than 500g, gift inscription 1st page. Hugh would always bypass a McBurger in favour of a squirrel sandwich, or make a detour for fresh road kill - to some he is bonkers+ but to others a shining and shaggy beacon of good sense in a food world gone mad. Armed with a broad mind, a quick wit and a ready appetite, Hugh covers almost every area of global food culture. Whether singing the praises of offal; debunking Colonel Sanders and Dr. Atkins; playing 'poisson roulette' with the deadly fugu fish in Tokyo; pondering the moral inconsistency of those who condemn fox hunting for its cruelty while happily tucking into factory-farmed chicken; fishing for marlin in Kenya, trout in Chile and barracuda in the Bahamas; analysing the tea-dunking qualities of some classic British biscuits; contemplating why if piglets are destined for the pot, why aren't puppies; or reminding us that a reindeer isn't just for Christmas, but tasty all year round, Hugh has an unerring ability to entertain and provoke. 288 thought provoking pp.. Hardcover. Very Good/None issued. 24cm.
